Today’s R2S: Man Rescues People and Animals From Florence
A truck driver from Greenback, Tennessee, drove into the Carolinas last week to fill a school bus with dogs and cats from animal shelters in the path of Hurricane Florence. Tony Alsup bought an old school bus into what he describes as an Emergency Animal Rescue Vehicle. Alsup loaded up 53 dogs and 11 cats from various shelters and transported them to a shelter in Foley, Alabama.
After his first trip to South Carolina, he has since headed back into the storm zone to rescue people and animals from flood waters. In a recent video post, Alsup said he was headed towards Lumberton, North Carolina where a dam could possibly collapse.
So, kudos to him for doing an awesome thing in a tragic area of the country.
